Buster in a Talkie? - How d'ya Like Them Onions?
Looking for a film for the evening and found this absolute gem. Jimmy Durante and Buster Keaton star in this fabulous film that takes you behind the scenes of the vaudeville traveling show all the way to Broadway, with a no luck troupe and a previously hermit-like professor, who thinks he has inherited a lot of money.
A great study of the times and customs of early 20th Century courting, clothes, manners and the stage. Quite fruity in parts too.

I Like Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer too but......
I Like Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer too but I hate what they did to the great Buster Keaton. He said signing to MGM was the worst decision he ever made. He lost control,They paired him with Jimmy Durante??? WTF! He did musicals???!! His great vision and mastery lost to the studio system.
